The best time a year ago was slightly in excess of 53 miles an hour.  As in previous years, the gold cup event will be run in three 30-mile heats and the winner will be j determined under the point system of scoring, which credits each contender with a point for finishing and a point for each boat defeated., Ender this system of scoring it Is possible for a craft to lose a heat, but pile up enough points to out distance its nearest competitor, and win the cup  Hon.

Let us have a real get together movement; let us rub elbow r s and get acquainted.  “To faciliate the early realization of such a movement, I wish to make these suggestions:  FRED C.

OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 27tli.— “Just as fine a body of men as you ever saw in a United States uniform, and that i3 saying something, for the United States has the most efficient, the most soldierly looking and the best appearing soldiers on earth.” This is Acting Governor Trapp’s estimate of the 2,700 officers and men of the National Guard of Oklahoma in camp at Camp Robertson, Fort Sill for annual field maneuvers. Governor Trapp spent two days at the camp last week and made a very careful inspection of the guard and its work.  “Those men are undergoing the same intensive training that made it possible for us to whip Germany” said Governor Trapp. “I watched every department of the guard thru the period of my visit to Camp Robertson and in ray opinion if any state in the union has a body of citizen soldiery that can compare with the National Guard of Oklahoma, —well, I’m not from Missouri, in point of nativity, but you’ll have to show me.”  Governor Trapp is enthusiastic over the success of the annual encampment and field maneuvers. Not only because of the development of an excellent body of citizen soldiers, but because of the advantage that me* are gaining frqm their fifteen days of training iii camp. He was an observer at the rifle range training and has a high regard for the marksmanship of the average member of the nafional guard. He reviewed both regiments at the camp and praises each of the regiments highly.  Governor Robertson is expected to return to the state, after attending the annual conference of gov-I ernors at Salt Lake City, some time I late today. He is expected to visit ;Camp Robertson the latter part of the week, when one of the big features of the encampment will be the brigade review’ Saturday after-THE ELKS DANCE IN HONOR OF j noon, w r hen the entire strength of  Chaplain Fred C.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
